    Pros

    It is nice that it's not on commission, so you have a decent idea of what your weekly pay will be. However, it is a sad salary--it is not in line with what most furniture stores pay--it's less than half of what you could earn in a normal furniture store. The staff is normally pretty good, and they're fun to work with.

    Cons

    Long hours on every weekend. Favoritism is rampant. If you don't have your nose stuck up management's butt, you will never be recognized, no matter how well your perform your job. People who get all the work accomplished while the nose-stickers sit in the information booth and talk never get any recognition. Only those who sit in the information booth and talk get any recognition from the top four managers. One assistant sales managers sees what is going on, but he is not able to combat the other four. The pressure to sell a minimum of $100,000 per month is incredible. If you do not meet this goal--and exceed it--your employment will be terminated soon. It may not be commission, but the pressure is more intense than any commission job I have ever had. The quality of most of the furniture sold here is sub-par, and you have to deal with a lot of upset, justifiably irate customers--and there is nothing you can do. Customer service is beyond poor. Communication between management and employees does not exist. A few of the favored people (see note about noses up butts) get all the information, and the rest of the store has no information given to them. The pay structure changes almost monthly. Any time a bonus structure is set in place, and a few people make the bonus, the structure gets changed so that it is more difficult to attain a bonus--and God knows the pay is not enough to support a family on.

    Advice to Management

    Get your management under control. It is sad that rampant favoritism rules, and that talent and a good work ethic gets you nowhere in this company. If you're going to stay in business, you must work on customer service. The bad word of mouth will drive you out of business, and do it quickly. Increase the pay to something that is close to what is a normal sales associate in a furniture store would make. Stop being greedy, and pay the hands that are making you so much money. Slow down the growth a bit, and take care of the talent you have!
